It was visiting Brome Fair as a youngster during the Great Depression when Sherman Young first caught a glimpse of his future in farming: a dairy herd made up of the loveliest purebred cows he’d ever laid eyes on.


"When I was a kid I just loved Guernseys for some reason."

It was visiting Brome Fair as a youngster during the Great Depression when Sherman Young first caught a glimpse of his future in farming: a dairy herd made up of the loveliest purebred cows he’d ever laid eyes on.

Back then, Floyd Sanborn was the man to know in the Eastern Townships if you were interested in Guernseys. Sherman’s father had struggled to make a living on the family farm at the bottom of Pinnacle Mountain near Frelighsburgh. Sherman was determined to do better. He began by asking Floyd if he could lead Sanborn’s herd in the fair’s weekend parade.

Many years later Sherman had to say goodbye to his own prize-winning purebreds, as local dairies closed and the larger buyers from the bigger centres stopped coming to pick up his milk. Sherman reminisces about his life running a small mixed farm in Quebec at the end of the 20th century, including the chance he missed to own a share in what became a thriving ski resort in the nearby town of Sutton.
